While IV was great I still think VI is the best.

I agree 100%.

FFVI, then IV, then VII.

fenome3025d ago

VI is at the top of my list too.

* The "best" game in any series is the one you personally enjoy the most.

this is really based on the user experience each individual had. personally for me it was 8 and 9. but someone else can argue its 12 or 7 or something else. theres no such thing as the best final fantasy. alot of them were great and the best during their time.

IV, is my favorite overall and has my favorite story, fake out deaths aside. If the final chapter was just those 5 characters, and all their friends were dead or crippled, i think it plays a lot better. Having all but Tellah alive and about zaps some of the urgency.

XII had my favorite battle system.
X had my favorite level system.
I is the first i played (know that is not the case with everyone) so it holds a special place.

I couldn't finish II. HATED that level system.
III and V are good in that class changes are amazing.
VI is a close 2nd on story
VII ... 3d blew me away
VIII I shunned on release but it had grown on me.
IX I played once and don't remember much about it.
Didn't play XI or XIV

And XIII is a giant piece of shit. Too many side games to comment on those, but mystic quest was the first one i beat. I didn't have the patience to finish I when I was 5 ...

Great list, give IX a go though, it grows on you, I really ended up liking it. and yeah, XIII is a big heaping pile...

Dasteru3025d ago (Edited 3025d ago )

IMO, IV is the third best after VI & IX.

Overall rating would be probably:

1: VI
2: IX
3: IV
4: XII
5: V
6: VII
7: X
9: III
10: I
11: X-2
12: XIII-2
13: LR
14: II
15: XIII

@Genova84: You really should give IX another try. It is a great game.

fenome3025d ago

Great lists all around! I hope this one gets up there with the rest of them, but I'll wait and see what happens..call me jaded..but I really hope this one comes back strong.

pixlz3025d ago

I love IV and IX best.

A lot of the games had kinda poor endings. VI and VII poor endings. Otherwise those two would also be tied... IV and VI are both games I leveled my guys up to 99. :)

Final Fantasy IV Pixel Remaster Review – An Epic Tale Of Pixelated Portrayals

Gary Green said: We’re finding ourselves in a similar position with the Pixel Remaster edition of Final Fantasy IV as we were with Final Fantasy III since, once again, we’ve received a slightly upscaled, more vibrant port of the original game when there’s already an expanded 3D remake available. As such, we’re playing a game which, even after its long-awaited release, still lives very much in the shadow of its remake.

If only they didn't screw ps4 owners over with a physical release. I'd have ran through this in a heartbeat.

The first one I played, it was the one that made me fall in love with JRPGs and is still my favorite to this day. A masterpiece
